Today I want to take time to introduce you to our missionary team here on the Mexico field. (For those of you who are confused, WGM's Mexico field includes McAllen, Texas!) Please pray for each of us as we work together to spread the Good News of Jesus!
(Left - Right)
On the far left of the picture is Marsha Hartley. She is the 3-4 grade teacher at Taylor Christian School (TCS) here in McAllen.
Next to her is the Allhouse family. Ariel will be attending Indiana Wesleyan University in the fall. Her parents, Bill and Lydia, are our field directors and live and work in Irapuato, Mexico. They have many responsibilities, includ Lydia being our field treasurer.
On the back row beside the Allhouse family are the Tarrs. Bill and Betsy Tarr (yes, have 2 Bills and 2 Betsys on this field. It can be quite confusing!) have been missionaries on several fields. God sent them to us just at the right time for Bill to be the Director of Taylor Christian School and for Betsy to help Lydia with field bookkeeping. Betsy will also be helping with the bookkeeping at TCS. In addition, they are the hosts of the WGM guest house.
Our family is next --- Gerson is holding Jayden and I am holding Edson in his carseat.
Behind us is Tom Atkins, who was our speaker for our field retreat in June. He can be an honorary member of our team! ;)
And next to me is Chrissy Greenwell. She lives and ministers in Saltillo, Mexico with a variety of ministries including teaching English and Theology by Extension.
In addition to all of these wonderful people, the Lord has brought us some new missionaries in the last 2 weeks. I'll have to introduce them to you in another post as I haven't taken any pictures of them yet.
Please pray for each of us, that the Lord will use in our various ministries to bring glory to HIS name. Pray for unity among us. Pray for protection. Pray for strength and wisdom.
Thanks for all your prayers, support, and encouragement. YOU are also a part of this team. We couldn't do it without you!
